While the Sun, in his final days in your career sector, is being confronted by Monday's Full Moon and this might create some professional pressure or work/life balance tension at the start of the week, the timing couldn't be better. The Sun will always spend the last 10 days and the first three weeks of every year in your career sector and at some point the Moon will return to your home and family sector as a Full Moon, putting your work/life balance to the test. The last time this happened was in late 2020, so these work/life balance reminders are long overdue. What makes the timing auspicious is that it is next week that the pace is really going to pick up, with these reminders coming at a relatively quiet point in this new professional year. It is just 12 hours after the Sun leaves your career sector on Thursday that the Moon will return for its first visit to your work sector for the year, ending the week on a positive note across the income, work and career fronts.
With the Sun not returning to your career sector until Thursday, Mercury's retrograde turn over the weekend has not only bought you time to hear yourself think but a chance for things to catch up. Mercury has been racing ahead and as he is the planet that rules the mind, there is a chance that your ideas and thoughts for this new professional year have been racing ahead. By coming to a standstill and turning retrograde, Mercury is able to wait for the Sun to catch up, something that will turn the solar spotlight onto your career and professional situation, matters and options. It has been less than three weeks since Jupiter left, with Mercury's retrograde turn a chance to pull back and focus more on the untapped professional potential this has created. It is the Moon's return to your work sector over the weekend that will give you a chance to get a deeper read on the evolving influences in play on the job and career fronts.
While Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion has been in your career sector for less than three weeks, along with dreamy Neptune his return late last month has already set the scene for an expansive professional year. However, it is only this week that things start to get real and this is thanks to developments on the income and job fronts. Just by starting the week with the Moon in your income sector was going to be an advantage, giving you a nose for money from the start while a friendly aspect to both Jupiter and Neptune can fuel your professional confidence. However, as a Full Moon, this has a lot more energy and can have implications that continue to play out and evolve for weeks. This is important because it is less than 12 hours after the Moon leaves on Tuesday that the South Node will return to your work sector, where it will stay for the next 18 months. By midweek energy will be in play on the income, work and career fronts that wasn't there until now but is here to stay.
While this could be a busy week, this is also the week where the thrust this can create, on the job front in particular could have long term implications. The week begins with the dwarf planet Eris having just spent her first weekend in direct motion in your career sector at a friendly aspect to Mars, now in his last full week in your work sector. This has brought the warrior prince and princess of the cosmos together at an important time for both. While Eris is the warrior princess of the cosmos and with huge career developments over the coming months her direct turn last week has released the brakes, support from Mars has helped to get things moving. At the same time, with the South Node leaving your work sector on Wednesday and Mars six days later, something that will leave it empty for the first time in 20 months, this is a chance for work and job matters to hitch their wagon onto ongoing planetary activity on the career front. There could even be some lucrative developments midweek.
The Sun will always spend the last 10 days and the first three weeks of every year in your work sector, shining the solar spotlight on your work situation, job matters and options. At some point during the Sun's month long visit the Moon will return to a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart and move into opposition as a Full Moon. This is something that can put how well you know when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off and this is what is greeting you on Monday. With the Sun leaving your work sector on Thursday there should be a lot of urgency and some real pushback. Instead, the biggest danger isn't the potential of work tension or job pressure and more how easy this would be to ignore. With Venus in her last full week in retrograde motion in your work sector and Mars not returning to fire things up until next week, this is the right reminder to pace yourself, at the right time. Especially as it is on Wednesday that Uranus' direct turn in your career sector and the North Node's return will give career matters the green light.
The Moon's departure from your career sector over the weekend means that you will start the week with your professional instincts and imagination fuelled from the start and the timing couldn't be better. The Moon was not only here as Mercury turned retrograde in your work sector but as the North Node was moving into its final days in your career sector. Mercury has come to a standstill in order to let the Sun catch up, in what is just the start of months of developing influences on the job front. It is a different story on the career front, with the North Node's departure on Wednesday leaving it empty for the first time since April 2020. The North Node's job has been to maintain a sense of professional direction, momentum and purpose, with the Moon's return late last week the last before it leaves. With your professional instincts sharp this will allow you to lock into and hold onto that sense of direction.
Starting the week with the Moon in your career sector is always an advantage, allowing you to begin the new working week with your professional instincts and imagination fuelled from the start. This is not only the Moon's first visit to your career sector for the year but the first since Jupiter's return to your work sector late last year, with the Moon's friendly aspect to him and to dreamy Neptune there getting the week off to a good start on the job and career fronts. Even if this was an ordinary monthly visit this would have been a huge advantage but as Full Moon this has a lot more energy, with a chance to energise things on the job and career fronts. There was no Full Moon in your career sector last year, with Monday's Full Moon not only the first of 2022 but the first here since late 2020. While the Moon will leave on Tuesday, with the South Node returning to your income sector less than 12 hours later, this could have ongoing implications across the income, work and career fronts.
The Moon returns for its first visit to your career sector for the year and with perfect timing and not just because returning on Tuesday, this will ensure your professional instincts are sharp during the heart of the working week. The week begins with the dwarf planet Eris having just spent her first weekend in direct motion in your work sector at a friendly aspect to Mars, now in his last full week in your income sector. This has brought the warrior prince and princess of the cosmos together in a way that has fired things up and especially your motivation, just as work and job matters have been given the green light. The Moon will make a friendly aspect to both Eris and Mars as it moves through and as they are just starting to separate, this will create a lot of positive energy across the income, work and career fronts. Right in the heart of the working week, the Moon might only be in your career sector for a few days but this could have game changing implications.
Looks are deceiving, making this one week when you don't want to judge a book by its cover but when you do need to stay in and embrace the moment. First impressions, with both planets in your work sector at a standstill will be that nothing is moving. Whether it is the dwarf planet Ceres, in her early days in direct motion after turning direct in your work sector over the weekend or Uranus, at a standstill ahead of his direct turn here on Wednesday, neither is moving. If the brakes are on, instead of fighting it embrace it, for it is on Wednesday that everything will change and within the space of just a few hours. It begins with Uranus' direct turn, something that will release the brakes but without creating any real movement. That changes a few hours later when the North Node returns to your work sector for the first time in 17 years and where for the next 18 months it will provide a sense of direction, momentum and purpose on the job front.
Thanks to the Moon's departure from your work sector over the weekend you begin the week with an intuitive read on work and job matters from the start. In any week that would be an advantage but even more with the North Node not only leaving on Wednesday but leaving it empty for the first time since April 2020. As well as providing a sense of direction, purpose and momentum on the job front and a series of eclipses over the last two years, the North Node has been working with its partner the South Node to police how well you know when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off. With the lunar nodes both leaving at the same time, the subtle pressure you have been under will drop but this will also leave you with an incredible sense of direction. It was having the Moon here over the weekend that makes it easier to get a read on the path forward. Meanwhile, it is over the weekend that the Moon's return to your career sector will give you a chance to check in with your professional instincts and imagination.
Beginning the week with the Moon in your work sector is always an advantage, giving you an intuitive read on work and job matters from the start. Even if this had been an ordinary monthly visit, which it is not, this first visit for the year and its friendly aspect to both planets in your income sector would have been the perfect warm up to the South Node's return to your career sector on Wednesday. While the Moon returns to your work sector every four weeks, Monday's Full Moon is the first here since late 2020, something that is not only has a lot more energy but can energise and trigger things that will continue to play out long after the Moon moves on. It can take until the Moon returns in four weeks for what is triggered to play out and this will be set in motion when the South Node returns to your career sector on Wednesday, where it will stay for the next 18 months. By midweek there will be an exciting new dynamic in play across the income, work and career fronts.
For Mars, in his last full week in your career sector, this week's stars couldn't be any better and for you, this sets the scene for an exciting week across the income, work and career fronts. With the South Node leaving your career sector on Wednesday and Mars six days later, all planetary activity on the career front is coming to an end. Yet it is less a case of things running out of steam in the early weeks of a new professional year and more that the momentum from last year has overshot the runway and still playing out. Mars was always going to be on a mission to make his final week here count while the South Node's departure ends a 20 month focus on the past and untapped professional potential. It is the Moon's return to your work sector on Tuesday that will see it not only form a friendly aspect to the South Node and Mars but to the dwarf planet Eris, in her first full week in direct motion in your income sector. This will see things come alive across the income, work and career fronts midweek.
